Are you looking for a simple way to relieve stress, tension, and anxiety that won’t break the bank and doesn’t require time-consuming trips to a massage therapist or yoga studio? If so, there’s an exciting Kickstarter campaign you need to check out for an innovative new acupressure mat called GoRelax. So far, it’s raised over $120,000 from more than 1,100 backers, and it just might change the way you deal with stress in your life.
In case you somehow hadn’t noticed, Americans are more on edge than ever before. According to the latest edition of the American Psychological Association’s annual report, Stressed in America, a full 74 percent of U.S. adults have experienced at least one physical or emotional symptom of stress in the past month. That includes feeling sad or depressed, experiencing a lack of motivation or energy, feeling nervous or anxious, lying awake at night worrying, and eating poorly, among other things. Meanwhile, a recent Gallup poll found that 55 percent of Americans report feeling stress during “a lot of the day.” That’s a whopping 20 points higher than the global average, tying America with Greece for the title of most stressed out nation on earth.
Unfortunately, due to the frenetic pace of modern life and technology that keeps us constantly connected to work—not to mention lower paying jobs and skyrocketing healthcare costs—most of us have neither the time nor the money to relax and take part in activities that mitigate our stress. That’s where GoRelax comes in.
Conceived by Aditi Agarwal and Akshay Jain and designed by Chicago-based design firm Dezzio LLC, GoRelax is an innovative new acupressure mat that applies deep touch stimulation to dozens of pressure points in your body. This deep touch stimulation replicates the feeling of getting a massage, increasing blood circulation, relaxing muscle tension, and releasing endorphins. These endorphins then interact with opiate receptors in the brain to relax your nervous system and decrease feelings of pain and stress. That makes GoRelax the perfect tool for anyone trying to achieve better relaxation, relieve stress, promote better sleep, reduce muscle tension, and relieve headaches and back pain.
Studies have shown that using an acupressure mat for just 15-20 minutes a day can significantly reduce stress and relieve pain. While GoRelax is not the only acupressure mat on the market, it does have a number of features that make it the best.
- 192 lotus-shaped contact points provide deep pinpoint stimulation that tingles at first before eventually fading away into a feeling of utter bliss.
- Ergonomic design, including totally unique curved neck pillow, contours to your body and maximizes contact with pressure points.
- Modular design allows GoRelax to be split into three separate sections and adapt to your needs.
- Folds easily for easy storage and portability.
- Eco-friendly: the outer fabric is 100 percent cotton, the inner filling is natural coconut fiber, and the lotus flower stimulation points are made from recycled plastics.
And if you act now, there are still some early bird deals available that give you savings of 30 percent or more off the expected retail price of this innovative acupressure mat. And the savings are even greater if you’re looking to buy more than one GoRelax.
So don’t wait. If you want an amazing deal on the ultimate stress buster acupressure mat, back GoRelax on Kickstarter today.
